Excellent in every way
I hired Mr. Abramowitz in 2017 to help with a private disability claim. He has that rare combination of excellent technical skills, great connections in the industry, a great reputation with other lawyers and with the insurance company representatives, as well as a deep understanding and compassion for the path of a professional who has lost his ability to work. In my case I was a mess, Ethan patiently waited for me to do the things I needed to do to get my claim paid. He showed incredible patience and insight, with just the right amount of encouragement. Finally I got my things done and my claim was appropriately paid, something when we started I never believed would happen. Thank you so much!

Disability claim
Ethan was highly professional, immensely patient with me, and were it not for his persistence in working with the insurer, long after I had given up, the claim would not have been paid.

Ethan fought long and hard on my case and never gave in. We knew it might be a challenge but he persisted. I’ve come to know Ethan over the months and can tell you he has been the most compassionate caring attorney I have come across. If you choose to work with Ethan, please know you will be in good hands.
